Entry level Enfield chard, medley of different vineyards, easygoing and accessible with sunny yellow and green fruit, creamy midweight palate and crisp mineral finish

Slight reduction, lean and citrus / mineral driven and “old world” on the attack but finishes with just a touch of ripe stone fruit, leesy richness and buttery malo on the finish to please everybody. Would pour this just about anytime

Fun tasting at Weygandt Wines with John Lockwood. This was the first of four wines being poured. Medium pale yellow. A bit tight on the nose. A bit toasty with a touch of stone fruits. Moderate acidity (6.5/10) and light plus bodied. Well integrated with lemon zest and pears on the palate. Not oaky but a slight woody note and solid minerality in the backbone. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2019.

John says to drink these early, so I'm happy to oblige! This is everything that a typical California Chardonnay is not, with really bright energy and copious amounts of acid. There's a nice kick of apple juice on the finish, making this stupidly easy to keep drinking.

One of my favorite accessible, all purpose Cali Chardonnays on the market right now. Summer night jasmine and faint vanilla, honeysuckle and lemon curd aromas. The subtlest hint of Chablis-like salinity. Light to medium body. Some white peach nectarine creeping in on the finish. Creamy - but more like 2% milk than butter. What it lacks in flavor complexity and finesse it makes up for with zest, precision and balance. Paired with weeknight-whatever’s-left-in-the-fridge carbonara.

Crisp, light, nuisanced. Bright citrus and light new oak on the nose. Not overly buttery and oily, more crisp and complex than the usual California Chardonnay. Nice long finish. A testament to great producers

Pale yellow with touch of green tint, not much aroma. After a few mins air it was smooth, on the lighter side, low oak, low butter, slight tartness. Flavors of green apple and/or pear, touch of grapefruit. Very nice! For The Infatuation-Parcelle Wine School Zoom.
